Here’s a four-pack of Indonesian discoveries guaranteed to get you checking discount flights to Jakarta. It starts with The Beast, a place that’s recently hosted the heaviest pit-plumbings this side of Peahi. If that’s a little much, consider “The No Brainer,” a virtual skatepark of a left/right/bombie combo. Next up, might Brad direct your attention to Cricket Point? It’s a legit sand bottom point in the wilds of (we think) Java, adding further reason to consider a land-based tromp. Finally, there is “The Hoax,” a hardly-hidden left point that Masters claims is “good from far but far from good.” Photos lie, but we won’t—this is a sick, sick assemblage.
